Do you drink enough water on a daily basis? Does your daily routine allow you to get what your body needs? We are told that our bodies need at least 32 ounces of water a day. Do you think that you even get anywhere close to that amount? Mostly, the answer to this question is, no. Do you realize that if you do not drink enough water, your body will retain it for you? When this happens, you will start to gain weight. It is referred to as water weight gain. Once this happens, the weight is harder to lose because this water is in your muscles.
Our body is made up of a lot of water, and your body loses water each day during activity. That’s why it is so vital to drink as much water as you should. It is important to make sure that the water you are drinking is just plain water. It is very important to drink as much as you should when you exercise or when you get sick. When you exercise or get sick, you sometimes sweat more, which can cause your system to use more water than normal. The more you sweat, the more your body drys out and this can allow you to become dehydrated.
If you become too dehydrated, you will end up in the hospital hooked up to tubes for a few hours. The more dehydrated you are, the longer you will have to stay. Once you get into the routine of drinking 32 ounces of water a day, your body will let go off some of the water that it has stored. If you can find a bottle that holds this amount of water, use it every day. Once you have drunk this water, you can drink whatever else you want the rest of the day. If you happen to be like most and have to have your coffee first, then go ahead and do so and then drink your water.

If you are someone that does not like the taste of tap water, then you will need to buy bottled water. No matter where you go, always carry some bottled water with you. If you have small children with you, it might be more important to have this water with you for each of you. These little children need water just as much as you do and maybe more because they are normally more active than adults. We might sit or stand in one place most of the day and children are always running. So try to teach them early to drink a lot of water during the day.
